brandonw on the Sitz im Leben blog calls attention to the Call for Paper's for the North American Patristics Society annual meeting in May.
Hi all! Welcome back to hyperekperissou and Patristics Carnival XXX, covering November, 2009. I'm late, as usual, but there are some excellent offerings over the last month. Enjoy!

Turretinfan on the Thoughts of Francis Turretin blog defends the perspicuity of Scripture throught his reading of Athanasius and the Ethiopian Eunuch among other concerns.
David Waltz on the Articuli Fidei blog questions TurretinFan's suggestion in the above post that St. Athanasius was trying to mock Pope Liberius in his History Against the Arians. He continues his debate with TurretinFan in his post on Scripture and Tradition.

April DeConick on The Forbidden Gospel blog discusses whether Gnostics were heretics, attempts to categorize the various types of Gnostics, raises concerns over National Geographic's documentary on the Gabriel Stone, following up this discussion with correspondance with Israel Knohl, the person who discovered the Gabriel Stone and announces the Codex Judas papers book has been published by Brill.
That is it for the month of November. Just as a heads-up, I will be writing a blog piece on the future of the Carnival (whose load is becoming crushing at this point in my life) and this blog in the next few days. Stay tuned for that discussion.
